Fundraising is a term that can bring fear and trepidation into the hearts and minds of the most ardent philanthropists!
Why? Because in today’s business climate people are typically inundated with requests to donate to a wide variety of extremely worthwhile charities.
The reality, however, is that budgets are limited and events can tend to be extremely pricey.
For example, in many instances golf outings can cost anywhere from $200 to over $1,000 for the day which prices them out of the reach of many, particularly small business owners.
But what if, instead of an outing or some other run-of-the-mill event that has been done over and over in the past, a charity were to present a concert featuring Billy Joel, Earth, Wind and Fire, U2 or some other band from the past that has huge appeal to a wide swath of the public?
And what if the price of admission for a 2-hour concert with a fantastic tribute band was under $50?
Because Hallmark Abstract Service gets involved with raising money for worthwhile causes whenever and however we can, I had the opportunity to meet Norman Wasserman who owns and runs Friend Entertainment USA.
For over 35 years Norman has been working with charities creating, promoting and presenting these concerts that bring significant money to a charities bottom-line!
Spend a few minutes with Norman and you will no doubt see the value and potential in what he offers.
